Wall Paintings of Eton
Compiled by Emily Howe, Henrietta McBurney, David Park, Stephen Rickerby and Lisa Shekede. The magnificant wall painting schemes celebrated here are both rare and inportant survivals. The extensive and sophisticated programme devoted to the Miracles of the Virgin, which was executed in Eton College Chapel in the late fifteenth century and arguably the most important extant late medieval mural in northern Europe, was first rediscovered in 1847 and the early sixteenth century mural of a lively school scene on the wall of the Head Master's Chambers only came to light in 2005. That two such major and significant creations should be found adorning the walls of a single institution is truly remarkable, and represents the inspiration for this major new study of both schemes. Preface by Lord Waldegrave of North Hill, Provost of Eton. Hard back. 192 pages. 290mm x 245mm. Full colour.
